The Library has made space available to the Friends for a permanent Used Book Store named CitiBooks on the lower level of the Library.  A grant from Home Depot helped to renovate the space.   Used books of all types, CDs and DVDs are available along with book gift baskets and other items for sale.  All proceeds will benefit Citizens Library.  The name of the shop, CitiBooks, was chosen in a contest held at the annual Book Sale in November.  It was suggested by Rita Johnson of Washington, PA.  Thank you, Rita!


We ask that you donate only items that are in clean, resalable condition.

Please see out Donations Flyer for the most up to date information!
